Forecast for Monday, February 6, 2012

There have already been some reports that area trees have begun to show the first signs of their new foliage, especially south of Philadelphia. For the fifth day into February, this is true testimony to the above normal temperatures in December and January….now continuing into February. With 50 degree readings during the next two days, this process should be helped along further.

A weak impulse of energy will move south of the region late Monday Night into early on Tuesday. A cold front will move through late on Tuesday. Both will bring clouds with little or no precipitation. Most sunshine on Tuesday will be at midday.
A weak, slightly more vigorous impulse of energy will impact the region later Wednesday into Thursday Morning. A period of light rain or wet snow is possible. Little or no snow accumulation is expected due to the surface temperatures and light precipitation intensity.

Another disturbance will impact us on Friday into Saturday. The exact timing is uncertain at the moment. We will then turn attention to the offshore waters to see how close an area of low pressure gets to our region for Monday and Tuesday. For now, still no winter storm in sight with above average temperatures expected the next seven days.
